An Fb post says this campaign is being looked over by KickStarter for approval to go live in a couple more weeks, and they've shown off the initial offerings as the below pic. The Unlockable figures will remain unrevealed until the campaign.

I don't like or even know all these characters equally, but they all make for great action figure designs to me and I'm likely gonna try to go All-In for this project.

Their response to my query about how long the campaign will run and how much to budget for an All-In package:

"It'll be 30 days. The "All In" is a few hundred and includes a min of 20 figures, plus an exclusive mystery figure to be revealed when we deliver the figures."

Mr Monster and Remo Williams are confirmed Unlocks.

Could be fun, but where's Captain Action and the Eagle Force? Without any product there, it would be hard to bite on these.

They said they wouldn't be taking anybody's money for new projects until Captain Action started shipping; last I recall. The KS starts in 2 weeks to end a month later; so they'd have to start shipping in 5weeks to hold true to that.

I know the properties, but if I were to do this, I'd only be looking at:

Madman-1
Jon Sable-multiples
Stray-1
Henchmen #1-multiples
Henchmen #2-multiples

Marvel Universe and the affiliated movie lines disappointed me so much from what I had originally imagined when Hasbro first got the Marvel license away from Toy Biz; and Mattel ain't never been able to do an 18th-scale figure worth a damn and DCDirect like them stupid-ass clear joints... so I'm still waiting for an 18th-scale superhero action figure toyline to deliver on the full meaning of its promise.

With such a small company, handling such relatively small licenses; the promise isn't really all too high so I've got them set appropriately, I think: deliver good product as advertised. I'm still eager and anticipatory for my Capt Action and Larry Hama figures; but I'm not panicky or anxious over the delays as they're well within industry norms and have been explained with decent-to-middling communication. I'm hopeful that movement on this campaign means the earlier ones are further along than we're assuming. Hopefully.

Bill Murphy tells me there are about 30 figures planned for the campaign, meaning another 18 characters to unlock beyond the 12 shown.

I thought these were already in a KS set.

yeah, can't ever see backing a KS with this crew. I'd be interested in figures already made. But zero confidence of the investment 3 years in advance being worth it.

There was a series of 5poa figures built off the Mattel Secret Wars buck.

Nice figures but I got too much money out there waiting on delivery, EF, He’ll Screamerz, Zombie Lab, and the MTF WWII. Maybe if EF was already in hand I would be more apt to buy in. I do like the figures and look forward to picking some up hopefully at a later date. I really like the henchmen/thug figures.

I agree with everyone else. I'd be interested in some of these, but the lack of ANY product is a problem for me.

Considering the campaign raised $0 with 0 new contributors overnight, I'm kinda thinking this campaign is done for. There seem to be some licensing-expiration issues pushing them to rush this out before it's ready, imho.

At this rate, $30K of $150K, it will probably get funded, but barely and no unlocks or not that many.
